Grolsch (Redesigned)

Today Grolsch and CARTILS will reveal the new graphic design for all bottles, cans and other packaging for the iconic Grolsch brand. The design will be introduced into the Dutch market this week. The new packaging will be hitting the store shelves worldwide beginning March. SABMiller teamed up with CARTILS, the well-known international branding and packaging design consultancy, in order to give the brand a more prominent look and feel. The primary focus was on the creation of a consistent worldwide visual identity, which emphasises the brand values as well as increasing the standout factor.

The most important solution was found in the development of the reinforced image carrier, the ‘Grolsch brand badge’. Gaston van de Laar, Group Director Client Services at CARTILS explains: “After winning the pitch we translated the brand strategy into a coherent design strategy, resulting in creative solutions that serve a strong international brand. The new image carrier reinforces the Grolsch brand values. It provides a more fresh, robust and dynamic look.” “And above all”, Ronald van Amerongen, Global Brand Director Grolsch continues, “Grolsch has a rich heritage and we believe the new packaging shows off the brand’s story of quality, attention to detail and pride in standing out from the crowd. In addition, we want to revitalise Grolsch to increase stand-out on the beer shelf.”

The ‘brand badge’, with the rejuvenated logo, embodies the values the iconic Grolsch brand stands for: independence, craftsmanship, authenticity and a premium feel. But more importantly, it shows a brand world that revolves around beer with character. To emphasise this world, the packaging consistently us

It is satisfying that, with our current international expertise, we have been able to create a look and feel that fits this Global Flagship Brand.”   More images… Leer más “Grolsch (Redesigned)”

Brazil now second biggest country on Twitter, UK fourth

According to a study from research firm Semiocast while the US is still easily first place on Twitter in terms of accounts, with around 107.7 million in total, Brazil is now the second biggest nation on the microblogging service.

There are now 33.3 million Brazilians with Twitter accounts, which is enough to push it passed Japan on 29.9 million.

That said while Brazilians have swarmed to Twitter they do not make as much noise as the Japanese who tweet much more. As reported recently Japan is the only country in the world where Twitter has a higher number of monthly unique visitors than Facebook.

There are now 33.3 million Brazilians with Twitter accounts, which is enough to push it passed Japan on 29.9 million.

That said while Brazilians have swarmed to Twitter they do not make as much noise as the Japanese who tweet much more. As reported recently Japan is the only country in the world where Twitter has a higher number of monthly unique visitors than Facebook.

The Semiocast report analysed 383 million Twitter user profiles created before January 1st 2012 and used its proprietary platform and tools to process user profiles in order to determine the location of each user using all available information (free-form location declared in user profile, time zone, language used to post tweets and GPS coordinates for the very few concerned tweets).
